Hello, good night Sofwatin Nimah ...
Complaints of the face feel like being electrocuted when brushing teeth, talking, and eating (or in other words, pain occurs when moving the mouth / jaw) can be caused by:
Trigeminal nerve disorder, which is one branch of the nerve that innervates the facial area. This condition is called trigeminal neuralgia. Typical symptoms of this condition are stabbing pain such as electric shock that lasts a few seconds to minutes that are triggered by certain movements such as talking, smiling, chewing, teeth groping, gentle touches on the face, etc.
Pain due to disorders of the teeth and gums, such as cavities, inflammation of the gums, etc.
Temporomandibular Joint Disorders
We cannot confirm the cause of the complaint you are experiencing without conducting a direct examination. We recommend that you carry out an examination to a specialist in neurological diseases to ascertain your condition and to get appropriate therapy. To establish a diagnosis, the examining doctor will conduct a question and answer around complaints, conduct a physical examination, and suggest supporting examinations if needed (such as X-ray or MRI).
That's all, hopefully it helps .. :)
